“A family is a set of intimate social relationships that adults create to share resources so as to ensure the welfare of themselves and their dependents” (Robert and Lie 77); a family is also a unit that gradually molds a person’s personality. “How you behave and what you become in life are very much dependent on your family life” (Importance). To this extent, families play crucial role for people in their lifetime, let alone for children whose social interaction begins at first between family members. Researchers have demonstrated time and time again that “the environment in which children are raised significantly affects their intellectual, physical, social, and emotional development” (Important). They further emphasize that those impacts on their childhood will probably be carried on even after they grow up and experience a lot of changes. For decades, researchers have also been interested in how parents influence their children’s development, and one approach in this area is the study of what has been termed as parenting style (Darling and Steinberg 493). This paper is a review of research studies on parenting styles within the ethnical (cultural) contexts. The idea of examining this field of study is partially derived from Chapter 2 (Culture), Chapter 7 (Race and Ethnicity) and Chapter 9 (Family) in the book named Sociology: The Points of the Compass, written by Robert Brym and John Lie. The whole paper is divided into several sections. First, it starts with the illustration of ethnical (cultural) aspects that differentiate families. It is then followed by the classification of parenting. The paper then focus on the influence of culture on parenting styles and finally provides a conclusion as a whole. Families Are Different “Family define themselves as a family. Membership in a family can be decided only by each member of that family” (Couchenour and Chrisman 22). Families differ from one another in many ways; ethnicity and culture are two crucial differences greatly impact on a family’s beliefs, practices, and values (McGoldrick, Giordano and Garcia-Preto 1). Ethnicity Ethnicity is a shared concept and culture heritage by groups of people whose commonality are transmitted from their ancestors generation by generation (Couchenour and Chrisman 22). The identity of these ethnic groups is uniquely marked based on the combination of race, religion, traditions, and ancestors (Robert and Lie 302). They differ from others in terms of languages, foods, stories, customs, values, and other aspects. Families carry on their ethnicities through their own family traditions, celebrations, religions, stories, and entertainments (McGoldrick, Giordano and Garcia-Preto 14). The importance of ethnicity on each family varies (Couchenour and Chrisman 23). Culture Culture is the unique experiences of ethnic groups using languages, symbols, beliefs, values, ideologies, and material objects to deal with real-life problems (Robert and Lie 40). It acts to shape family’s values, thoughts, reactions and socialization goals (Bigner 8). Therefore, the styles of communication between parents and children can be quite different among various cultures, which means what is considered to be an acceptable way of interaction in one culture could be very offensive in another cultural context. “When parents are exposed to a dominant given culture with high frequency, they are affected by the norms and values of that culture” (Keshavarz and Baharudin 67). Consequently, those culturally affected norms and values could easily serve as the guidelines for parents to interact with their children. In this sense, “understanding the cultural context of the society can potentially help to predict differences parenting styles that predominate in that society and to understand why these differences occur” (Keshavarz and Baharudin 67). Trawick-Smith states, “Only through a full understanding of parental beliefs, socialization practices, and family relationships, can the individual needs of individual children be well met (qtd. in Couchenour and Chrisman 25). The Classification of Parenting Styles “The principal role of parenting involves the promotion of nurturing, balanced relationships or, contrastingly, the exacerbation of stress-prone, hostile exchanges between parents and children” (qtd. in Keshavarz and Baharudin 67). Darling and Steinberg emphasize that “parenting style is a constellation of attitudes towards the child that are communicated to the child and create an emotional climate in which the parent’s behaviors are expressed” (493). Baumrind has investigated parenting styles in a series of studies and found three primary categories of parenting styles identified as authoritative, authoritarian and permissive (Reeves), which later on are conceptually expanded by with “two linear constructs: responsiveness and demandingness” (qtd. in Sonnek 8). Authoritative Parenting Referring to those studies conducted by Baumrind, authoritative parents are conscientious, consistent, warm secure in their ability to parent and unconditionally committed to their children (Reeves). On one hand, they state behavioral expectations to children; on the other hand, they respect their children’s opinions and independence; while setting high but realistic goals for their children, they also provide the necessary supports for them to achieve these goals. The authoritative parenting was found most effective in “fostering social responsibility, sense of self-esteem, confidence and adaptability in their children to meet challenges of academic and other contexts where strong beliefs in one’s abilities are required” (Couchenour and Chrisman 94). Some researchers have examined the relationship between parenting style and children’s adjustment, and confirmed that “authoritative parenting style is positively associated with healthy adjustment and reducing maladjustment than other styles of parenting” (qtd. in Keshavarz and Baharudin 67). Authoritarian Parenting Authoritarian parents provide firm and high control over their children and require them to be very responsive to their demands; they are very punitive and affectively cold; they set firm goals to their children but allow little verbal exchange; compared with two other parenting styles, authoritarian parents are less likely to use gentle methods of persuasion (Reeves). To this extent, children have poor communication skills, and social incompetence; they are easily to become anxious while being compared with others. Studies on the relationship between parenting style and children’s adjustment have found that “children of authoritarian parents tend to have low self-esteem and lack spontaneity” (qtd. in Keshavarz and Baharudin 68). Permissive Parenting Characteristics of permissive parents are identified as warm, high nurturance, responsive but low in parental control and demand few maturity behaviors (Reeves). Permissive parents would like to allow their children to control their activities as their willingness. They expect little of children, and place few demands on them. This parenting style tends to be “unsuccessful in enabling children to develop a range of self-directing abilities that underlie academic success” (qtd. in Keshavarz and Baharudin 68). Researches later on split the permissive parenting style into a fourth category- ‘indulgent and neglecting’ parenting, which most fits with its definition (qtd. in Sonnek 8). Cultural Influences on Parenting Styles In the nineteenth century, parenting experiences varied considerably by gender, age, social class, and culture, just as they do today (Baker 94). Individuals may consider parenthood as “fulfilling a moral obligation” (Bigner 9). Vygotsky indicates that human knowledge is rooted in culture (qtd. in Couchenour and Chrisman 8), which means what much of what children know derives from their families, such as, how to celebrate holidays; how to prepare, cook and eat foods; and how to behave properly in the public places. On many occasions, children’s behaviors of are mostly based on their parents’ expectations and demands. The values and ideals of a culture are transmitted to the next generation through child-rearing practices (Keshavarz and Baharudin 68). Therefore, children in different cultural contexts can be cultivated by their parents to behave differently; in this sense, it is necessary to take into consideration the importance of culture when evaluating parenting behaviors. “Cultural models of individualism and collectivism” can bring direct as well as indirect impacts on parenting behaviors (Keshavarz and Baharudin 68). “Its direct influence on parenting behavior could be explained by passing on values of a culture to their children to become productive and integrated members of their culture” (qtd. in Keshavarz and Baharudin 68); its indirect influences on parenting behavior are via “more societal forces such as language patterns and customs, and economic structure indirectly (Health Canada 8). To this extent, parents can relate their parenting with those direct and indirect cultural effects. Individualism and collectivism refers to the manner in which people perceive themselves in relation to other members in the society (Brislin 23). Literally, individualism indicates independence. It includes “the wide-spread and growing belief that people have the right to choose their own martial partners, to be happy in marriage, and to find new partners if their relationships turn out to be unsatisfactory” (Baker 24). In contrast, collectivism implies interdependence. It includes the mutual emotions and beliefs shared by people as a result of living together (Robert and Lie 371). Robert and Lie further explain that collective actions include “routine actions” and “non-routine” ones, which take place when people act simultaneously in accordance with or opposition to external changes, such as social, political, economic, etc; their difference is that the former ones are “typically nonviolent and follow established patterns of behavior in existing social structures”, whereas the latter ones occur “when usual conventions cease to guide social action and people transcend, bypass, or subvert established institutional patÂterns and structures” (371). In this sense, different family relationships, family interactions, self-concept, and academic achievement can be assumed via collectivism and individualism (Newman 51). Therefore, “the arrangement of children’s activities differs from parents to parents with differing childrearing goals and cultural meaning systems” (Keshavarz and Baharudin 67). Collectivism can be fully reflected by most Asian countries. Parents emphasize desirable traits such as interdependence, duty, sacrifice, compromise, conformity, highly involvement in one another’s lives, however, it does not mean a complete ignorance of individual’s well-being or interest; it actually means that “maintaining the family’s well-being is ultimately the best guarantee for the individual’s well-being” (Newman 51). To this extent, authoritarian parenting may be more appropriate in those collectivistic societies compared with other parenting styles (Keshavarz and Baharudin 69). “High levels of economic hardship” have been greatly linked with authoritarian parenting and even neglecting parenting -a split of permissive parenting (qtd. in Sonnek 16). In sharp contrast, “cultures like Western Europe, the United States, Canada, and Australia tend to value individual freedom, autonomy, personal development, and gratification over group obligation and duty” (Newman 52); Newman emphasizes that childhood is sometimes regarded as the preparation for leaving home as the sign of independence, even those people who experience unwillingness and sadness at the thought of breaking these ties accept that it is a necessary step towards growing up (52). Therefore, it could be concluded that it is much more appropriate to examine parenting styles and their meanings in the cultural context (Bigner 9). In the conceptualization, “culture is theorized to afford different meaning to behaviors (e.g., parenting) and has different effects on children and adolescents across different cultures” (Keshavarz and Baharudin 69). For instance, in China, where I was born and brought up, proper and mild physical punishments are sometimes used by parents for controlling their children; they are considered as part of the authoritarian parenting; however, this parenting style is greatly opposed by many other cultures, and regarded unacceptable. Researchers mention that children will accept parenting behaviors which are consistent with cultural values (qtd.Keshavarz and Baharudin 69). For example, Chinese kids (including me when I was young) view spanking, which could be one of the physical punishment, as their parents’ concerns and affections on them in the Chinese culture. Conclusion Chapter 9 of Sociology: The Points of the Compass concludes that Parenting styles and behaviors perform a crucial role in the growth of children. Ethnicity, described in Chapter 7, is a socially constructed label which has “profound consequences for people’s lives”, and differentiates people by “perceived physical or cultural differences” (Robert and Lie 198); these cultural or ethnical differences can lead to different parental forms and behaviors in different social context; in other words, the ways that family members interact with each other are affected by the culture of the society, therefore, just as what has been examined in Chapter 2, what counts as good for raising children in one culture can be regarded as negative in another culture; to this extent, cultural and ethnical factors should be counted in order to better understand and examine parenting styles in different societies.
Product Line Due to the increased demand for natural beauty products in Thailand, Diva sales company was recently established to sale and distributes natural beauty products in Bangkok. The demand for natural skin care products has seen unprecedented increase over the past few years. The natural beauty products have gained immense popularity due to their high safety margins as compared to the synthetic products. The many side effects associated with synthetic beauty products have forced consumers to look for the natural alternatives. As a result, many leading brands have “come up with a range of natural care products and herbal treatments”. The Diva natural beauty products will source products from different manufacturers to distribute and sale them in Bangkok. The following is a plan on how the various sales activities will be carried out to establish and run a natural beauty products business in Bangkok, Thailand. The consultative personnel selling process The Diva natural beauty products will be sold using various methods. First, prices for the range of natural beauty products will be established by evaluating the cost of acquiring the products and the prices offered by the existing competitors in the market (Flybjerg, Skamris and Buhi 133). A catalog will be prepared and given to the sales representatives who will then go round to advertise and sale the products to various outlets. The sales will be instructed to use the ABC (Always be closing) approach in closing sales (Eric, Ford and Bornstein 12). This will ensure that they are constantly reminded of their objective of aiming to close sales. Sales objectives Develop an efficient sales force within the first after launching the business To double the number of high potential customers in every two months in the initial year of establishing the natural beauty product sales business Identify and focus on the most requested products within the first six months after launching the business Gain a competitive advantage over other market players within the first year of business. Before the natural beauty products are launched in the market, extensive market research will be conducted to identify; other market players, product preferences, the prevailing market conditions, the rules and regulations regarding the sale of beauty products in Thailand, labor costs and the general cost of running such a business. After all collection of all the above information, the company will embark on a market entry strategy that will ensure that it gains a sizable chunk of the market within the first six months. Many avenues will be explored, though the company will emphasize on price reduction and extensive advertising activities. Developing and managing the sales force Organizing the sales force The sales force will provided with specific guidance on the responsibilities that are required of them. First, the sales personnel will be required to understand the value of natural beauty products in order to pass the same information to customers and clients (Flybjerg, Skamris and Buhi 140). Training sessions will be organized to ensure that the sales personnel are conversant with the range of natural beauty products being offered by the company. Team selling will be encouraged so as to tap into all the strengths of different sale persons. Though competition among sales team can be beneficial to the company, they will be encouraged to keep in touch in order to motivate each other (Eric, Ford and Bornstein 25). Each individual in the sales team will be required to keep records on their actual sales in spreadsheets for evaluation. Follow up meetings will be held every week to determine the progress of the different members of the sales team (Flybjerg, Skamris and Buhi 142). The sales team will be composed of highly energetic and motivated individuals who can represent the business in the best way possible (Eric, Ford and Bornstein45). The sales personnel will be required to establish good working relationships with each other, clients and customers. They will be required to have a prior knowledge of how to present, sale and close natural beauty products. The packages for compensating the sales force will be competitively established in order to provide adequate incentive hem to give their best (Flybjerg, Skamris and Buhi 143). Compensation for the sales force will be established in relation to a number of factors. A standard performance level will be established and used to gauge the performance of the sales personnel to determine the base salary to be given. The company intends to offer higher pay rates to exemplary performers in order to retain them. The compensation package will however be more focused on commissions rather the salary for the purpose of motivating the sales people to spend more time selling and booking new orders (Flybjerg, Skamris and Buhi 143). Get your 100% original paper on any topic done in as little as 3 hours Learn More Performance assessment will be based on competence and behavior. The competence and assessment data will be recorded for every individual in the sales force and will be used to compare output between different individuals. The assessment data for the highest sales performer will be used benchmark and identify performance improvement opportunities for the rest of the team (Flybjerg, Skamris and Buhi 155). Sales persons who persistently show poor performance will be sacked from the company. Sales Forecasting Sales forecasting will be done using a two methods: first, the number of natural beauty products consumers will be approximated in specific locations, for instance within a radius of one mile. The number of competitors in the area will also be established. Then the amount of money they can spend annually will be estimated and divided among the companies doing the same business depending on the market share. Secondly, forecasting will be done according to the type of natural beauty products that are offered (Eric, Ford and Bornstein 57). The gross sales for every product per day will be established and multiplied by 30 to determine the monthly sales. Using this method, the revenues for every product will be easily established for a forecasted period of time. Establishing sales territories In order to establish sales territories, other companies that are dealing in the same natural beauty products in Bangkok will be identified at the beginning of the sales activity. Competition from the synthetic beauty products will also be evaluated. More importantly, the business atmosphere for natural beauty products will be evaluated, for instance, the differences in purchasing power. The sales representatives will be trained on how to build positive relationships with customers so as to ensure that come back to the Diva natural beauty products. Contacts will be established with retailers who are eager to sale our product rangers. A strategy will be developed to ensure that established customers are offered incentives that will make them come back with their friends or inform other people about us. An efficient contact system will be established and managed with our clients. Budgeting and quotas The budget for the natural beauty products business venture will be based on the total expenditures to be incurred in setting up the business, the operational costs and the income from projected sales. The budget for the revenue and expenses will be developed to the last detail in order to reflect the actual operations (Eric, Ford and Bornstein 67). The budget for the salaries will be based on a monthly wage paid to the workforce that will chiefly consist of sales personnel. Other major components of the expenditure budget will be: monthly lease for the rented premise; insurance quotas; expenses for utilities such as water and electricity; telephone expenses; transportation expenses (Flybjerg, Skamris and Buhi 145). The revenue from sales will be estimated by taking the forecasted sales of each unit in a given period of time. The expenses will be controlled by the following activities: First by encouraging the sales personnel and other staff members to be cost effective; secondly, substantial amount of finances will be recovered by using cost effective means of transport to move the sales personnel from one place to another; the employees will be encouraged to work in teams in order to efficiently use available resources. Leadership model A bass leadership model will be adopted in the Diva natural beauty products sales. Using the bass leadership theory, emphasis will placed trait, crisis and learning. Thus as the leader of the natural beauty sales business I will be required to ensure that proper attitudes and behaviors are withheld in the sales force (Eric, Ford and Bornstein 102).

The American Dream and the California Dream share a number of similarities. Both dreams guarantee every American the right to liberty, life, and the pursuit of happiness. However, in the California Dream the social culture changes rapidly compared to the American culture. Ever since the first immigrants came to America, California has been an admirable place (Rawls 13). With favorable weather conditions, the place offers a number of opportunities. The article below defines the California Dream based on a number of essays and an extract from the Day of the Locust. According to A Place, A People, A Dream, the California Dream is based on anticipation (Rawls 10). Rawls asserts that the dream guarantees to accomplish Californians’ deepest yearning for prospects, victory, favorable weather conditions, beauty, wellbeing, freedom, and liberty (Rawls 13). In spite of the high hopes of these captivating guarantees, Rawls believes that the dream at all times does not turn into a reality for many individuals. In his article, Rawls believes that California has always been a place of both hopes and disappointment (Rawls 16). Living in California implies that you have the ability to exploit a variety of opportunities available in the region. Based on the above article, the definition of California Dream is inconsistent (Rawls 26). The author believes that the region is a place of unbelievable enterprises and luck. According to the author, in the region no one can fault the state for failing to provide its inhabitants with equal opportunities to prosper. However, the author warns that in California nothing is to be taken for granted (Rawls 17). Californians have little knowledge on the perception that their dream posts are not automatically dependent on their credentials. He illustrates that the reality of achieving these ambitions depends on the immigrants’ abilities to grasp the available opportunities. The definition California Dream is illustrated in the Day of the Locust (West 334). The short story portrays a different definition of California dream unlike other literatures. Through this, it introduces the reader to the harsh realities of California. The author illustrates the fancy of star-struck California. The region has numerous amusement joints such as Hollywood to entertain those who come in pursuit for fantasy. According to the author, a number of people aspire to travel to the region with the aim of exploiting the available opportunities. However, being a residence of California does not imply that one will attain his or her life expectations. In spite of the high hopes and captivating guarantees, the dream at all times does not turn into reality for many individuals. West asserts that new immigrants to the region within a short time identify that sunshine is not everything. He notes that the individuals soon get bored with the fancy structures of the region. He further notes that as their boredom increases the individuals recognize that the California Dream has tricked them. Another definition of the California Dream is depicted in the pictures painted by the main character in the short story. In the picture, the dream is depicted with cynicism. When Tod sees the immigrants flocking to California he asserts that they had come to the region to die (West 333). In one of his pictures, The Burning of Los Angeles, he illustrates the dream having been diminished. He represents the lower class of California with badly cut clothing. The picture depicts the harsh reality of the California Dream (West 334). As such, the immigrants are represented as the dreamers. They came to the region hoping to be successful and enjoy the services offered. According to the author, a number of these dreamers live in bitterness because their Californian Dream diminished. In addition, another definition of the California Dream is presented when Tod witnesses the architectural structures of Pinyon Canyon (West 334). In the region, he sees different architectural structures constructed based on the immigrants native regions. He is surprised by the structure’s poor quality. To him, the structures illustrate a failed yearning to come up with a romanticized setting depicted in the California Dream. Even though the California Dream guarantees splendor and contentment, the cruelty and sorrow of the region surprises Tod (West 334). Get your 100% original paper on any topic done in as little as 3 hours Learn More In conclusion, it should be noted that in California Dream is defined based on a number of literatures. As indicated above, a number of people aspire to travel to the region with the aim of exploiting the available opportunities. However, being a residence of California does not imply that one will attain his or her life expectations. In spite of the high hopes and captivating guarantees, the dream at all times does not turn into reality for many individuals. West asserts that new immigrants to the region within a short time identify that sunshine is not everything. Based on the various literatures focusing on the California Dream, it is apparent that the paradox in how the dream can be understood is creepy and very exciting when analyzed based on how the dream came about.

Reading Analysis for Ethics Class Essay
help writing Ethics has a significant role in the public service. Personalities need to emulate and practice proper ethics. Particularly, this relates to those serving in public administrative dockets. Adams and Balfour, (2009), emphasize the need to maintain the society in an ethical state. The two authors propose two basic approaches that may help in preventing the humanity from ethically “coming apart at the seams.” The present changes within the American society are noted. The sociopolitical and economic factors have increasingly transformed within the U.S. Consequently, these have impacted on the state of ethics within the public service. The interconnection between liberalism and individual ethics is obvious. The authors examine the American society from the period of the historical revolution. The ability of liberalism to impose phenomenal ethical challenges within humanity is also indicated. Authority must be exercised in a manner that motivates controlled freedom. However, the effects of globalization on the morality of the society require great precaution (Adams
